Cinco de Mayo is often celebrated with tequila, traditional Mexican eats, and parties with friends and family. This year, while your festivities might look a little different (aka virtual in nature), there’s no better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than with festive Hornitos Tequila cocktails! 

 Boldly born in 1950, Hornitos Reposado Tequila was created in honour of Mexican Independence Day and is made using 100% blue agave grown in Mexico. With hints of herbal and green apple notes, it has a woody taste with a warm, slightly astringent finish that is the perfect companion for your favourite cocktail. 

 Below, you’ll find three easy to make Cinco de Mayo cocktails that you can make for your virtual celebrations: The Hornitos Jalisco Tea, Hornitos Margarita, and Hornitos Mexican Mule.

As the first official cocktail of the Film Independent Spirit Awards (FISA), “Drop the Mic” embodies the character of FISA, incorporating imaginative flavors that represent the innovative spirit of filmmakers. “Drop the Mic” contains orange and cacao shrubs, an old technique used to bring the delicious flavor of Bulleit Bourbon to the forefront of your palette. Combined with Oloroso Sherry and mole bitters, the drink takes on a gritty but fruit forward flavor profile, mirroring the grit and determination from the filmmakers and entertainers who have been nominated for this year’s Awards - the full recipe can be found below my signature. 

 

Inspired by the Film Independent Spirits Awards trophy in appearance, the cocktail has a dark and elegant shade and is served in a rocks glass. As you sip it, it’s surely a drink worthy of a mic drop!

 

Bulleit is gearing up to honor some of this year’s hottest films with one-of-a-kind neon bottles created by Bulleit partner and Neon Queen, Lisa Schulte. Guests of this year’s first ever virtual Film Independent Spirit Awards will also get to experience an immersive Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Bar during a pre-show cocktail hour.

VINELAND, ON, April 19, 2021 /CNW/ - Wine Growers Ontario (WGO), whose members produce over 80% of the wine made in Ontario, thanks the federal government for providing $101 million over two years in the 2021 Budget for a wine support program.

WGO and partners across the country worked together with senior federal officials to develop a trade legal wine grower support program. In July 2020, the federal government announced that it would terminate the excise duty exemption program, which was implemented in 2006 and supported investment in more than 400 grape wineries, stimulated 40 million litres of new wine production, and in 2020 contributed almost $5 billion annually to the national economy.

"Today's Budget announcement is key to the future success of the Ontario wine industry. The loss of the excise duty exemption would have been devastating without such a program in place. We know how valuable this program is for the future of our industry and we look forward to ensuring that this program is in place long past the two years announced today. That certainty will allow us to continue to invest and grow the 18,000 jobs in our province that rely on our industry," said President & CEO of Wine Growers Ontario, Aaron Dobbin.

"Over the past year, Wine Growers Ontario along with our national association and partners in British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Quebec has worked tirelessly with federal officials to develop a winery support program that is trade legal and will benefit our industry. We will continue to work to get that program put in place. I want to specifically thank Agriculture Minister Bibeau, International Trade Minister Ng and our local MPs Chris Bittle, Tony Baldinelli and Francesco Sorbara who have helped ensure the funding is in place for this essential program," said Wine Growers Ontario Chair, Del Rollo.

LOS ANGELES – April 19, 2021 – Atlanta’s Viva Tequila Festival was honored at this year’s TASTE AWARDS (aka, the TASTY Awards). Often called the “Oscars of Food, Fashion and Lifestyle Media,” this edition of the Taste Awards highlighted Viva Tequila Mexico Experience under the category of OUTSTANDING CULINARY & TRAVEL EXPERIENCE. This year, as for many awards shows, the Taste Awards had a virtual broadcast that reached viewers across the globe, from Japan and South Africa to England, Poland and Italy, and from New Zealand to Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.

Participants are able to mingle with locals and admire and shop for unique Mexican works of art, both folk and fine, all while sipping limited edition craft Tequilas from distilleries that embody traditional to modern styles of manufacturing. Highlights includes visits to the Fortaleza and Don Nacho craft distilleries as well as hacienda of José Cuervo, where participants bottle their own Reserva de la Familia, and enjoy a tasting in the property’s private cellar and then dinner at the Tienda de Raya, both opened exclusively for Viva Tequila Festival.

Tour participants are treated to stays in centuries-old haciendas that were once home to some of Mexico’s wealthiest people. They can enjoy a morning horseback ride at the historic, 17th century Hacienda Labor de Rivera or disconnect and relax with a spa treatment at Hacienda El Carmen Hotel & Spa.
